Uh, you?  At least that's how I understood the phrase »to release
"standalone" versions of preview-latex« in the paragraph quoted above.

Which does not make finding stuff related to a certain release
significantly easier in my opinion.  It's a step into the right
direction but does not go far enough.

There are also projects which put the files into subdirectories when
the top directory tends to get overcrowded.  gcc may serve as a
prominent example.
